IMPORTANCE OF A MINDFUL MORNING Author: Mindful Morning, Life Coach, Megan Hall, Motivational Speaker The definition of mindful is conscious or aware of something. So what is a mindful morning?

With nowhere else to go, I start in with the workout- that was when I think “I probably should have gone to the bathroom before this, oh wait a sec, I did go, I should be good. Nope. Not good.
